Health Center receives $775K grant By Amy Moss Strong Bandon Western World

BANDON — Bandon Community Health Center has received a $775,000 federal grant to provide access to quality health care services to low-income and rural residents. Oregon’s Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden announced the grants last week, which included $2.4 million in new, competitive federal grant funding for four community health centers in

Oregon. The health centers that received the grants include: ■ Bandon Community Health Center, Bandon — $775,000 ■ La Clinica del Valle, Medford — $405,922 ■ Umpqua Community Health Center, Roseburg — $316,667 ■ Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center, Cornelius — $858,333 Wyden and Merkley have long advocated for funding of community health

centers, according to a press release. “When families are healthier, we all do better,” said Merkley. “Oregon’s community health centers provide critical health care services to those who might not otherwise be able to access that care. I’m pleased these grants will go to boost the good work they do.” “Access to primary care and prevention is essential to getting America healthy,” Wyden said. “Community health centers in Oregon are an important part of that effort. This funding is

well deserved and is yet another example of the quality services delivered by — and to — Oregonians.” The Affordable Care Act created an $11 billion fund to support the operation, expansion and construction of community health centers over a five-year period. The grants awarded last week by the Department of Health and Human Services will allow community health centers to serve more patients through

Behind the principal’s desk is a familiar face By Amy Moss Strong Bandon Western World

BANDON — When students returned to Bandon High School this fall, some were surprised to see the familiar face of Sabrina Belletti behind the principal’s desk. After all, many of them had her in grade school, then in middle school. Belletti is happy to see all of those faces and it has made her new role of BHS principal easier — she already knows most of them by name. Belletti is not just a familiar face for students. She has worked for the Bandon School District for 22 years — 16 at Ocean Crest, where she taught second, third and fourth grade; and six years at Harbor Lights Middle School, where she taught fifth and sixth grade. She was hired to replace longtime former BHS principal Gaye Knapp, who retired last spring. Belletti attended grade school in Myrtle Point and middle and high school in Coquille. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Education at Western Oregon University. Belletti has been preparing for an administrative role for several years. She earned her master’s degree in education administration and initial administration license from Lewis and Clark College and is working on her continuing administration license. She has a daughter, Riley Wahl, who graduated from BHS last year. Belletti is an avid runner and has participated in relays, particularly the Roseburg to Coos Bay. She also plays basketball once a week at the Ocean Crest gym with a group of locals, and just purchased a paddle board and is looking forward to learning the sport. She is engaged to Tom Dixon, the new social studies teacher at HLMS. Helping each student at BHS prepare for a post-secondary experience is one

Testing now at Southern Coos Director of Nursing Services Carol Meijer and radiologic technologist Randy Logan demonstrate new Dexascan equipment that will provide osteoporosis testing at Southern Coos Hospital beginning Dec. 2.

Bone density testing at SCH Bandon Western World

BANDON — No longer will people have to leave town to get important bone density screenings, as testing will be available at Bandon’s hospital beginning Monday, Dec. 2. The Southern Coos Health District Board voted to add this service to the medical imaging department at Southern Coos Hospital. Equipment to make it possible was donated by Southern Coos Health Foundation. “Until now, people have had to drive to Coos Bay or elsewhere when a doctor has ordered the tests that diagnose and track osteoporosis,” said Southern Coos Health District Board Chairman Esther Williams. “Now they can get the test done quickly with state-of-the-art equipment right here at Southern Coos Hospital.

“We have medical imaging technologists who are trained to perform the test and a space for the equipment, so the time seemed right to add this for the convenience of our residents,” Williams added. “We are grateful to the foundation for buying the equipment. It’s a win-win for all.” The Foundation Board is devoting proceeds from the sixth annual Bandon Golf for Health Classic, a donation through the Crane Creek Foundation fund of the Oregon Community Foundation and an additional community donation to buy the equipment needed. “We are very pleased to help bring this service to Bandon,” said Southern Coos Health Foundation President Joseph Bain. “The equipment is housed in a room freed up when foundation

donors helped X-rays and mammograms go digital, eliminating the need to store films.” The Foundation Board thanked the donors and the golfers and tournament sponsors who provided the money to make the purchase. “They have made it possible to add a service that is very important, particularly to those age 65 and over and those who have a history of osteoporosis.” Bain said. The test itself is simple, painless and takes only about 10-15 minutes. People remain in their street clothes. “Bone density testing is often ordered by physicians at the same time as mammograms,” said Williams, who is a retired registered nurse. “People can now have both done efficiently and easily at our hospital.”

COQUILLE — Coy Smith, 40, was back in court the morning of Nov. 5 for a change of plea hearing, but instead the defense asked for more time to prepare their case. The Bandon man was arrested in October and charged with manslaughter in the death of William Drews. On Oct. 3, authorities found the 42-year-old Drews lying motionless outside of a residence on Bill

Creek Lane. Police had responded to a report of an altercation. Drews was pronounced dead on arrival at Southern Coos Hospital, with an autopsy indicating he died from blunt force trauma to his head and neck. To get more time to sift through the evidence that will be presented at trial, Smith decided to waive his right to trial within 60 days of his arrest. A new change of plea hearing has been set for 8:30 a.m. Dec. 10.

BANDON — Start Making A Reader Today is seeking five volunteers for the 2013-2014 school year at Head Start in Bandon. The SMART program began working with Head Start a few years ago with the aim of introducing reading skills to a younger age group to prepare them for kindergarten reading readiness. SMART also provides reading programs at South Coast elementary schools. It dovetails with the Bandon Readers and Volunteers Organization, or BRAVO,

a similar reading program run by volunteers and already in place at Ocean Crest Elementary School, serving kindergarten through fourth grade. SMART volunteer readers in Bandon will spend an hour per week reading one-on-one with Head Start preschoolers, helping them build vital reading skills and develop a lifelong love of reading. SMART site coordinators also are needed. They run SMART programs at a site, coordinating with teachers and volunteers and supervising reading sessions. This time commitment is between two

BANDON — A 78-year-old Bandon man is safe after spending the night in the woods when he got lost in dense brush while picking mushrooms. According to the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, on Nov. 10 at 12:50 p.m., deputies responded to the area of Bear Flat Road in the Coos County Forest off U.S. Highway 101, following the report of a lost person. Initial reports from the victim’s family members indicated that Thomas Morgan had gotten separated from his party while picking mushrooms. It was reported that the last time he was seen was in the morning hours. Upon further investigation it was learned that Morgan had actually been out overnight, and had been separated from his party on Nov. 9, the day prior to it being reported. Family members reported that they had phone contact with Morgan, who was certain that he knew where he was, he just could not get to the road. Family members called the Sheriff’s Office the following day when Morgan did not return. The area of forest that Morgan was lost in was extremely thick, with dense brush, which made navigation and travel difficult. Sheriff’s deputies assisted by a Search and Rescue K9 used a series of

sound sweeps and cell phone pings to locate Morgan, who was fatigued and dehydrated, but in overall good condition, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Members of Green Acres Fire and Millington Fire responded to assist with packing Morgan out of the dense forest. Morgan had exhausted himself while attempting to self rescue and had to be carried out by assisting personnel. Morgan was treated on scene by paramedics and did not require further treatment. The Coos County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind those who enjoy the outdoors and spending time in the natural beauty of the Southern Oregon Coast to take some simple precautions and plan ahead. People who go missing don’t intend to get lost, but when they do they can lessen the effects by preplanning. Always tell someone where you’re going and when you expect to return. Carry a signaling device, such as a whistle. Make sure you have water and a full battery on your cell phone. Remember that a cell phone is not a failsafe device for communication, and certainly not for navigation. Most importantly, if you ever find yourself or a loved one lost, notify law enforcement right away.

Port of Bandon to meet in Coquille COQUILLE — Port of Bandon Commission will hold its regular meeting at 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, in the Coquille City Council chambers in Coquille.

Letters Blessed with wonderful event Recently, St. John Episcopal Church hosted a Spirituality Day for women from the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon. More than 100 women from western Oregon and the South Coast attended, and it was something of a miracle that our little church could host so many people. We owe a huge debt of thanks to folks from Bandon who helped make this a wonderful day for all our guests. Parts of the event took place at River House and when our transportation arrangements fell through at the last minute, the Bandon School District stepped in to provide a school bus and driver Sandy for us. They were a real godsend as they ferried people from the church to town and back again! We had a small “market place” at the church where Bandon artists and merchants were on hand to display and sell their beautiful artwork, designs or products. Those who were a part of the marketplace were Ann Sobbota from Sage Place; Kathy Blohm; Victoria Tierney; Joanne Drapkin; artists from Art by the Sea including Kathleen Morey Bailey; Robin Hanna; Sherri Merritt from the Merritt Lavender Farm; Kim Logue; Sylvia Thomas from Sylvan Scarves; and Sheila Levinsky. Thanks so much to all of them. Our guests were delighted by these representations of Bandon products. Four local motels offered our guests discounted rates. They were Sunset Ocean Front Lodging, Best Western Inn at Face Rock, Bandon Inn and La Kris Inn. We were able to advertise our event as a “destination weekend” and many of our guests did stay in Bandon for the weekend. We offered workshops for our guests, and Dr. Gail McClave, Sara Green, Victoria Tierney, Susan Alexander, Ginger MacCullum and Marty Burkett all served as workshop leaders along with the Rev. Susan Church (from Newport) and myself. They truly enriched our day with their presentations. Maria Belmonte-Forty and Amy Wernet were on hand to provide massages for our guests. The following businesses donated products to raffle or money to a special scholarship fund for Bandon Community Preschool: Patina, Bandon Mercantile, Face Rock Creamery, Port O’ Call, the Arcade, Truffles and Devon's Boutique. Truly we are blessed by all who helped us make our event so wonderful, and that goes for all the St. John members too. The Rev. Beth Hoffmann, vicar St. John Episcopal Church Bandon

Rethinking Veterans Day I would like to thank the Bandon Western World for its thoughtful Veterans Day tribute to local veterans by publishing their names, years and branch of service, and the photo of the 51 vets who showed up for that purpose in response to the paper's earlier call for information about Bandon residents who served. I missed that call myself but was surprised and honored to find my name listed along with a dozen or so others who likewise missed the survey. Many of us forget, or never knew, however, that November 11 was originally called “Armistice Day” and was declared a federal holiday by an act of Congress in May 1938 as “A day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and a day thereafter to be celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day.’” That day was chosen to commemorate the end of the terrible devastation and slaughter of World War I. The ceasefire for that “War to End War” was finally reached at “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month,” November 11, 1918. After World War II, another and even more devastating war that shook the very foundations of Western civilization, Congress voted in 1954 to change the name of the holiday to “Veterans Day” in order to honor American veterans of all wars, not just World War I. But that name change also involved a change in emphasis away from the original intent of Congress for a holiday “dedicated to the cause of world peace” to become a day to honor American war veterans. In effect, Veterans Day has tended to become an occasion for glorifying military service, and by extension, the military itself. We listen to solemn speeches about the valor and heroism of those who serve their country, puff ourselves up with patriotic fervor, wave flags and celebrate with martial music and parades. In some instances we even fire off gun salutes to honor our heroes. Although many families still go to the cemetery to commemorate their lost ones on this day, or spend it quietly grieving for those who returned home from service so maimed in body and/or spirit as to be incapable of fulfilling what had been their family dreams, as a nation we seem to want to ignore or forget that 90 percent of the casualties of modern warfare are civilian. (Perhaps we just assume those casualties only hap-

pen in other countries that lack the high tech protective gear of our troops or their most up-to-date weaponry for killing people or laying countrysides to waste, so it is of little concern here in the U.S.) Maybe, too, we are so blinded by the idea that service to one’s country is such a praiseworthy thing in itself (forgetting that the youth of other countries including those we deem our enemies have the same notion), that we do not even do justice to the sufferings of current service members or their families. According to Pentagon statistics, suicide rates among active military personnel for the past three years have exceeded deaths that result from combat. Suicide rates among veterans have also reached alarming numbers, estimated now to be at 22 deaths per day. More than ever before, American military families have to cope with these kinds of losses or with returning loved ones who come back totally altered by PTSD, brain damage, drug addiction or other debilitating consequences suffered in our military adventures in other parts of the world. There is little to be proud of here and something is definitely wrong. Maybe military service is not the primary thing we should be celebrating on November 11.

Delaware Avenue is no joke If you missed the November City Council meeting, I recommend that you watch it on local broadcast or get a copy at City Hall or the library. I presented the council with petitions with 30 names requesting that the Delaware drainage project be restarted. In the meeting, Councilor Brian Vick said that his previous comments on the kind of street installed on Delaware were said “tongue in cheek,” as confirmed by Mayor Mary Schamehorn. Yes, it was just a joke. A joke that today affects 11 people in seven households. Funny? The illegal berm that the city put in causing flooding onto my property has not been removed “so everyone can handle their own flooding issues.” That was the mentality Councilors Vick, Procetto and Powell used to vote the Delaware Avenue project down after months of approval. It also requires removal of the berm for fairness to the Delaware Avenue residents. When Matt Winkel was asked about removing the berm, he stated three times that “no one has asked me to remove it,” until both Councilors Mike Claassen and Nancy Drew held up their hands to say that they, in fact, had asked for it to be removed.

Mayor Mary later sent Councilor Claassen an email asking what gave him “authority” to ask that question. Uh, he is a council member! You can get a free copy of my response to that meeting titled “Thanks” by contacting Bev Lanier at the city. Which of these kinds of actions and inactions by council members represent the kind of people you want to re-elect? I have informed the city that I will remove the illegal berm at the top of the next door neighbor’s driveway, if they have not done so by next week. Diana Brown Bandon

Don’t forget Umpqua ladies! I am sorry that I failed in last week’s letter to the editor to thank the ladies at Umpqua Bank, both current and former employees, for volunteering at the Kiwanis Thrift Store each month! Kiwanis would like to give a big thank-you to Wendy, Laurie and Stacia; and to Donna for getting the whole program started a few years ago. I apologize if we missed anyone, and want everyone to know we appreciate your great help. Rheta Thompson Bandon Kiwanis

Support land exchange In my opinion, the land exchange with Mr. Keiser is a great opportunity for Bandon. Bandon Dunes Golf Resort put helped put Bandon on the map. Bandon Dunes Golf Resort advertises so heavily nation and worldwide and we (Bandon) could never afford this type of exposure. Tourism is the lifeblood that will support Bandon in the years to come. Having high quality organizations like Bandon Dunes Golf Resort and Kemper Sports take an interest in developing more golf courses here is one of the best things that could ever happen to Bandon. I am just glad they settled on Bandon and not some other nice little town. In doing this project, Mr. Keiser will create jobs and draw even more people to Bandon in the years to come. I own Bandon Beach Vacation Rentals, Bandon Beach Vacation Properties, LLC and Bandon Property Management, LLC and can see the positive effects already. Bandon is much busier than it has ever been, stroll through Old Town and you will see more people than ever before coming and going into all of the stores, and much later in the season. Please support Mr. Keiser and the land exchange. Dave Schradieck Bandon

November/December library art on display Erica Rae Brown’s photography is featured at the Bandon Pubic Library’s gallery for November and December. Title of the show is “A Family Affair.” From Brown: Propaganda turned on its head and that head being part of a tongue and cheek. “A Family Affair” seeks to simultaneously project clashes and unities in a rising tide of queer equality with a changing face of traditional family.” Brown is a visual artist and a true product of the west. Born in Fairbanks, Alaska and raised in Seattle, she has honed her multimedia production skills in Tahoe and Portland and is now settled in Los Angeles. Brown works primarily in portraiture, capturing the unique face of a changing America. June Hendricks’ art marker show, “Eclectic Ambrosia,” also is featured in November and December in the library’s glass cases. From Hendricks: “Last October, I decided one day after doodling and drawing for decades while in meetings or on the pages of phone books or just about anywhere, that I would get my colored pens and do what I did in color. I wanted to be able to draw things and make

faces and do what I wanted, but my pens took me elsewhere and it has been a journey of unexpected pleasure. It is like unloading my brain on paper in color.” “Eclectic Ambrosia” is Hendricks’ second showing, the first not being a sale. She is a retired 65-year-old woman, who lives in Myrtle Point and finds contentment in her small farm community.

Orford will give a presentation on art glass as part of the “Interesting Langlois” series. The presentation will begin at 6 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 21, at the Langlois Public Library.

Ray’s raises money for Principal breast cancer research BANDON — Ray’s Food Place announced today that Pink R, its annual October campaign to raise funds for local breast cancer research and awareness organizations, raised $73,344.40 to support the work of local foundations. The funds were raised by employees during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, by asking customers to “round-up” their grocery order to the nearest dollar amount. Rocky Campbell, vice president of operations and team captain for the sixstore team that won the inter-company fundraising competition, said his team was “passionate about the Pink R cause and many knew individuals affected so they really got excited to help.” The connection to the cause by all Ray’s store employees and the generosity of our Ray’s customers helped us to raise a phenomenal amount this year, he added. All of the funds raised will support the 14 different local organizations, which provide a range of varying services related to the fight against cancer. Since 2007, Ray’s Pink R Program has raised more than $400,000 for local breast cancer awareness and research organizations. Organizations were identified and nominated by local stores for inclusion in the program. This year, the Pink R program supported: ■ Bree’s Foundation for Breast Cancer


Awareness and Education — Southern Coos Health Center Foundation, Bandon ■ CC’s Clothes for Cancer — Brookings-Harbor ■ Douglas County Cancer Services — Roseburg ■ Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital — Newport ■ Willamette Valley Cancer Center — Breast Cancer Research, Eugene ■ Women’s Imaging Center at Three Rivers Community Hospital, Grants Pass ■ Providence Community Health Foundation — Leila J.

of Belletti’s main goals and she is passionate about advancing curriculum and technology for the school. Her job also includes implementing new state and federal goals and mandates, including teacher evaluations, proficiency standards and the dual credit program, all of which must be implemented this year and in place by next September. Dual credit classes award students college as well as high school credits through approved curriculum. By next fall, Belletti hopes to have at least four teachers certified to offer dual credit classes. Those tasks alone could easily take up much of her day, but she has help from a supportive staff as well as support and great rapport with Superintendent Diane Buche. “I’ve found the teachers here easy to work with and we have a few new staff members who bring new energy, balanced with seasoned staff members who bring that experience, and everyone’s on board with moving forward,” Belletti said. Belletti said at the high school level, every decision a student makes affects his or her future. And she wants all of them to succeed. “Our job is to get our kids ready for post-secondary experiences, including trade schools, school-to-work, twoyear or four-year colleges and not everyone learns the same way,” Belletti said. “I want to make it fun for kids. I want them


Biologist Stuart Love, ODFW traded 607 acres of land it owned near Lakeside at Eel Lake adjacent to Tugman State Park for two wetland pieces totaling 510 acres owned by Bandon Biota. One of those parcels is located at Winter Lake near the cedar shake mill in Coquille — an area that floods yearly — and the other near Beaver Slough on North Bank Lane along the Coquille River, where the road intersects with U.S. Highway 101 and leads down to North Bank. ODFW and other partners plan to restore the Winter Lake area to benefit threatened coho salmon and other fish species and to provide nesting and feeding areas for a wide range of wildlife.

The new bell schedule allows students to attend an adviser period every Wednesday, where teachers address curriculum. Currently, they are working on writing skills, a focus of every teacher. Another goal she has to facilitate learning is to

make the school wireless to allow technology in the classroom, but there is no funding to bring BHS to that standard. Belletti is busily looking for grants and welcomes any ideas. Juggler, multi-tasker, organizer are words to describe Belletti. She moved from teaching to administration because it has a wider reach. “When you’re in the classroom, you’re making a difference in the lives of 30 kids,” She said. “But as principal, I feel I can help more students. It’s making changes at a different level. It’s a bigger system to meet more needs at a higher level and it’s also about being innovative with limited resources.” “I love working with adults and staff too,” she added. “I love my job, I really do. It’s really busy, all of the time.”

Monday’s meeting is the fourth one involving stakeholders. “The meetings with stakeholders are providing me with input regarding the management plan I’m writing,” Love said Tuesday. “Part of the management of one of the properties, Winter Lake, will involve restoration to benefit fish habitat, especially coho salmon, which are on the endangered list. It’s an effort to get them off the list.” Another important element of the restoration plan is to provide public access to the land for wildlife-related recreation, including wildlife viewing, fishing and

Nationwide, $150 million was awarded under the Affordable Care Act to support 236 new health center sites across the country, according to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Bandon Biota acquired the Beaver Slough wetlands property from Resources Roseburg recently, and has owned the Winter Lake property for a few years. ODFW has no plans to acquire additional property in the area, Love said. “It’s important to stress that we are not the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,” Love said. “We are a different agency with different goals and objectives.” Love said he hopes to have a draft plan done after Jan. 1, then after public vetting, hopes to have it in place by next summer.

Southwestern offers a look at ‘The Last Ocean’ COOS BAY — The Ross Sea is one of the least widely known seas. It is also the most pristine stretch of ocean on Earth. Scientists describe it as the last “living laboratory,” a place that can teach about the workings of all marine ecosystems. In coordination with Coos Surfrider Foundation and Coos Watershed Association, Southwestern Oregon Community College will present an 87minute documentary about the race to protect Earth’s last untouched ocean called “The Last Ocean.” Student Life and Events will be hosting a free viewing of the film at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, in the Hale’s Performing Arts Center. Through revelatory

interviews and breathtaking cinematography, the director explores the complexity of the world’s southern-most fishery where each summer an international fleet breaks through the ice to target the large and lucrative Antarctic Tooth fish. The fish are then re-branded to the more palatable name “Chilean Sea-bass” and are highly prized in the upmarket restaurants of New York and Asia. But Antarctic tooth fish are a top predator in the Ross Sea — lose them and the natural balance of the last pristine marine ecosystem on Earth will be lost forever.

Bread & Wine to host Beaujolais Nouveau Day BANDON — A wine tasting party for Remy Wines, as well as one of France’s most famous wine labels, will be held in Bandon on Thursday, Nov. 21, in Old Town at Bread & Wine, A Collection of Local Foods. The wine shop is located directly across the street from Bandon Coffee Cafe, just past the Old Town arches. The free tasting will be held from 5-8 p.m. Folks are invited to meet with friends at the local wine shop to enjoy several wines and accompanying tasty treats. Shop owner Nancy Evans was inspired by a time-honored French tradition. “It’s not just children who are looking forward to the holidays, we all want a reason to get the party started this year,” Evans said.“Looking forward to another year, a fresh start, is what keeps us positive and moving forward. So it is great news there is another way to begin the party season with what the French have been calling Beaujolais Nouveau Day for many years.” Always celebrated on the third Thursday in November, the grape growers and wine makers in a region in France bring out their newest bottled vintage way before its time to sample the newest wine they have made. Gathering together and making predictions of what the fully matured wine will be like in a few years has become a tradition for family and friends to celebrate, Evans explained. “It’s also a great excuse for a party,” she said. France isn’t the only place this tradition is taking hold. Wine makers of Oregon’s famous pinot noir are releasing some of their bottles from this year’s crop early, too. “So why not join them in their fun with a toast to the harvest and the holiday season to come?” Evans said. The fresh fruity new wines being introduced from Oregon and France are the ideal wines to serve with a holiday bird. “Finding the right turkey wine is always a challenge,” Evans said. “These light yet fullflavored “nouveau” style wines are perfect for the novice to wine tasting.” To learn more about one Oregon’s winery that is producing a Pinot Nouveau for 2013, visit For more information, call Evans at 541-347-9081.

Pamper yourself at Hands & Tans By Amy Moss Strong Bandon Western World

BANDON — Hands and Tans is Bandon’s newest one-stop pamper shop and judging from recent accolades, customers are pleased with the treatment they receive. Located in the Bandon Shopping Center next to BeginAgains, Hands & Tans is owned by Kellie Flynn who has enlisted the services of two licensed nail techniHands & cians, a spray tanning booth, Tans Salon two licensed Bandon Shopping Center massage theraOwner Kellie Flynn pists and two Appointments: 541-329-1826 l i ce n se d estheticians, offering all nails services, spa pedicures, gel manicures, facials, waxing, makeup applications, custom massages and Mystic Spray tans. The shop also features retail items, including a wide selection of handbags, lotions, handmade scrubs, skin care, nail care, scarves, sunglasses, body washes, self tanners and jewelry. Arranged with comfortable furniture and walls painted warm greens and browns dotted with tropical stencils and inspirational quotes, the shop is welcoming and spacious. Flynn was raised in Bandon and married her high school sweetheart, then went straight to beauty school. After beauty school, she worked for six months at Sherde’s, formerly located next door to her new shop. Flynn then went to work as a nail technician at the Hair Club south of town,

Retail, too In addition to full spa services, Hand & Tans has retail items for sale. where she built up her clientele over her 15 years there. By then, she was ready to expand. “I really wanted to bring the new Mystic Spray tan to Bandon,” Flynn said. “People need to be more aware of protecting their skin and since Oregon is banning UV tanning for anyone 18 years old or younger on Jan. 1, I felt it was a real need in our area.” Flynn didn’t know what to do with the large newly rented space. “I felt it was just too big for me and I also wanted to add retail, so my husband and I decided to add rooms and do a full day spa,” she said. Soon Heather Brown and Jeanie Taylor, both licensed estheticians, joined the team, specializing in custom facials, waxing and

make-up application. Brown, a Bandon High School graduate, has been working at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort but also has been a licensed esthetician for six years and is “finally following her dream,” Flynn said. Taylor, who lives in Coos Bay, also has been licensed for six years and is new to the area. Then came Amanda Fuller, a licensed nail technician, who worked at Bandon Baking Co. for several years and was doing nails on the side. “Amanda decided to dive in full-time to help me with the overwhelming number of walk-ins,” Flynn said. Recently, two more were added to the Hands & Tans team: Maria Forty and Amy Wernet, both licensed massage therapists. Forty has been licensed for four years and practices with Dr. Loudenbeck, a chiropractic, in Coos Bay and Bandon. Wernet, who also works at Jeffrey’s Spa and Bistro, is new to the industry, but Flynn said her background as a nurse makes her naturally intuitive to people’s needs. Just three months after Hands & Tans opened, it was nominated in The World newspaper’s Best of the South Coast as best manicure/pedicure salon and also made favorites in the spa/salon and massage categories. “I’m so excited and grateful for the support I’ve gotten from my family and my home town,” Flynn said. “If it wasn’t for the clients I’ve had from the beginning, this wouldn't be possible.” Flynn encourages everyone to come see the shop and experience what Hands & Tans has to offer — and don’t forget to ask about packages and parties.

Tigers look ahead to bright future By John Gunther Bandon Western World

It didn’t necessarily show up in the final scores, but Bandon’s football team took a leap forward this season. Coach Silia Polamalu already was looking ahead to next season after the Tigers went winless in the Sunset Conference and finished 2-6 overall. “We are sad to see a season come to an end, but we are excited about the program looking into the future,” he said. “We have a strong class of juniors, the sophomores developed well, and we were pleasantly surprised with how the freshmen came along. “Next year, we will have the first group of freshmen who played in the South Coast Youth Football League program. We are excited to see how that program is going to show in the kids coming up.” Bandon’s wins over Culver and Chiloquin were an improvement over the winless 2012 season, but only told part of the story. “We took a step in the right direction as a program,” Polamalu said. “We had good numbers come

out and they had a very good attitude all season.” The Tigers improved their execution of the option offense and 50 defense during the year. “We were very competitive in nearly every game this season,” Polamalu said. “The players realized that they had a very good chance of winning on any night, and it really showed when we played Gold Beach. That was the best game a Bandon team has had against them since I have been a teacher here.” The Tigers kept in contact with the Panthers until late in the fourth quarter. Ultimately, the Tigers weren’t able to win any league games. “We were too inconsistent and made just enough mistakes at costly times to keep us from winning the close ones in league play,” Polamalu said. But along the way, Bandon’s players gained valuable experience. “We started several juniors and a couple of sophomores on both sides of the ball,” Polamalu said. “These young men earned some valuable experience that should give us something to build

on this offseason.” Bandon also had a strong JV season, helping give the Tigers a good foundation for next year. The coaches will push the players to commit to the weight room during the offseason. “If those juniors and sophomores will dedicate themselves to getting strong, and if the other boys’ coaches will buy into our lifting program, then I am confident that we will begin to win those

close ones and return the winning tradition back to our football program.” Meanwhile, Polamalu expressed gratitude to the seniors, who were freshmen his first year as head coach. “This group has endured some very challenging times as athletes and has shown a tremendous amount of positive character,” he said. “I am very proud of them and what they have accomplished as young adults.”
